City Councilors

The Las Cruces City Council will meet for a work session at 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, 2022, in Council Chambers at City Hall, 700 N. Main St.

City Council will receive a presentation on the state’s Public Defender Department and will be updated on the City’s Historic Preservation Commission during the work session.

Additionally at Monday’s work session, the Historic Preservation Commission will inform and update the Mayor and City Council about the state of local preservation efforts, the potential economic benefits of preservation planning, and the Commission’s accomplishments since it was established in early 2020.
